about

Your brain cells communicate by electricity. Whenever you hear a sound, your neurons fire in a rhythmic pulse.

The pitches played by this piano (from Supertramp's 'Gone Hollywood') just happen to make your neurons fire a metronomic 86.8560 beats per minute. We then slowed down the piano to match the tempo, creating a loop that your brain can 'tap along to' and based a composition off of it.

Once your brain hears more interactions, it creates a new beat pattern at the same tempo, which causes your brain to make another beat pattern, which causes your brain to make another beat pattern...
